Brisbane’s Big Splash: 4d milk bars in the 1930s

  1. Loving your work Toni Risson. Sadly, the term `milk bar’ appears to have `disappeared. I recall having to make milkshakes in the metal containers with yummy scoops of ice-cream and flavouring … stirred like crazy – not shaken… at Bob Cassimaty’s general store-come-milkbar/café at Ferny Grove. My very first job during high school to help pay for books, uniforms, etc. Wonderful memories.

    1. And it’s not just the name that’s disappeared Lorraine; sometimes I desperately want a milkshake and can’t find one anywhere. I bet you made a mean vanilla malted (my favourite – with a sprinkle of nutmeg).
